I know there are like 3 threads a day asking who threw the first triple. But i was wondering who threw the first double cork waaaaayyyy back when. +k for good/legitimate responses. or for ones that make me laugh.
in terms of double corks as we know them now, mike wilson's wilson flip was pretty much a dub cork 10 but was a little ahead of its time. here's the one in TBC (2005) but i thiink i saw him do one before that. maybe not
people did double flips and stuff like venus fly traps way before that, but in terms of doubles becoming cool again, the wilson flip was first but didnt really catch on, then a bit later jon learned the kangaroo flip and it went from there
yeah, the risky flip was a d7 to backflip, so super similar to double cork 10. that was back around 2000 though and werent part of the recent trendiness of doubles, which is why i lumped it together with venus fly traps etc. but yeah it's pretty much a double cork 10
First double cork I saw, or most people saw, was MW at the US open in 04... People were awestruck... nobody can say if it was the first, but if you ask MIke, or almost anyone around the industry at the time, it was. Jon was much more involved in media at the time (mike was 17) and he popularized it... However, it's hard to say. Not talked to everyone involved with it, but I do know that Mike worked hard with that trick, well before anyone else was at the time...
